Randle, who averaged 3.0 yards per carry last year, said he's bigger, stronger and smarter. "I'm a year smarter in the playbook. I think that's all things that help me play fast," he said. "Now, I'm just working on playing fast every play I'm out there. That comes with practice."
Randle is running third behind DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar.
Randle was the third back in for the Cowboys, but he did see action at the end of the first quarter as well as in the second and third quarters before wrapping up his night. He may continue to serve as the No. 3 back during the regular season, but Randle would be the favorite to lead the team in carries each week if something were to happen to starter DeMarco Murray.
With DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar sidelined,
Randle saw the bulk of the load on offense, racking up all 13 of his carries in the first two series of the game. He rushed for 50 yards and was held without a catch despite being targeted once in a 27-7 defeat.
